All the slams were pretty entertaining this year but which takes the cake?
Federer and Dimitrov was no contest in the 5th set as Federer was struggling physically. That match is NOT a classic.Wimbledon was boring until the final. USO had some classics even before the final, like Federer-Dimitrov and Monfils-Shapovalov. And the final was one of the decade's best matches.
The USO final was GOATY af lolVoted for USO. It's not just because Nadal won it, but because of how he won it. He beat a few decent opponents before the final, and Medvedev was playing great in the final, GOATing at some moments. A very high quality match, much higher quality than Wimbledon final IMO.
I haven't seen many players use crowd energy better than he did in the final, they literally helped him win 2 sets it was scaryMedvedev is a worthy contender for Slams now. Zverev can grind out 5 set marathons against nobodies, but he hasn't taken it to a top player like Medvedev did.
So what sucked more for Fed fans? That Federer lost to Djokovic again at Wimbledon or losing from 40-15 a winning position regardless who the opponent was?Of course Wimbledon is winning the poll though. Djokovic fans obviously vote for it, and most Federer fans will never vote for a slam which Nadal won. For many of them 40-15 was much easier to take than Nadal winning another USO.
And yet the only match from the quarters onward whose outcome was in doubt was Djokovic-Thiem and that was marred by the horrific weather.Roland Garros 2019, Quarter-Finals = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 10, 24
Roland Garros 2019, Semi-Finals = 1, 2, 3, 4
Wimbledon 2019, Quarter-Finals = 1, 2, 3, 8, 21, 23, 26, unseeded
Wimbledon 2019, Semi-Finals = 1, 2, 3, 23
US Open 2019, Quarter-Finals = 2, 3, 5, 13, 20, 23, 24, unseeded
US Open 2019, Semi-finals = 2, 5, 24, unseeded
And the only top 8 seeds to miss the Roland Garros QF was Tsitsipas (lost to French Open Champ Wawrinka-24) and Del Potro (lost to rising star Khachanov-10).
